Re: 4 basic types of people:

You are right in what you are saying @WispaRed7. People evolve and it's wonderful to see that happening. Would you say you have evolved from "carer" to more "leader"?

Re: 4 basic types of people:

No @Anonymous I'm not a leader, I'm a sheep, albeit a black one Smiley Happy It isn't in me to become leader-type

I would dearly like to go investigative / scientific type

eg I'd luv to go & do say Physics to GCSE 'O' level

We have a town college

but the courses are prohibitively expensive

You used to be able to get a course for a fiver, given certain circumstances, now that's gone, you see it used to be the college needed a certain number of students to run a course

town collee now affiliated to Huddersfield University

geared to young people (quite rightly imho) but since no 'night school' even the vocational courses are beyond my means

 

How is it in your area of UK @Anonymous

People do evolve. I walked out of school with not a qualification to my name....Went into nursing as a cadet at 15 and 5 half days a week were spent in 'college' I then went into nursing at 18. Got married.. had kids  and then dedicated myself to my career...as well as running a home and family.

It worked well for me and wouldn't change a thing. I had many opportunities within nursing to go on and get more qualifications. The hospitals were great allowing education and development. No...I wouldn't change one thing...Smiley Wink

I live in London so there a great choices of courses available. However with a very high price tag. I am all for education but I  think education should be available for free. Look at countries like Finland and Sweden, socialist countries in their inception, they are the leading examples  when it comes to high-standard free higher education. Finland being rated the top country in the world.  That being said, there are online courses that you can get for affordable prices here in the UK and community colleges that have affordable curriculum. Do you have time to study full time? Would your company support your expenses of the course? If you want to study, nothing should stop you

Re: 4 basic types of people:

Many of our colleges and community learning centres offer free courses. I enrolled for basic Spanish a few years back....sadly they changed the day and as I was going to Birmingham University at that time to do a degree and the dates clashed...I had to give it up... (then got lazy as so many Spaniards saved me the trouble by learning near perfect English) LOL
